DYK for South Bay Salt Works
|On 7 June 2015, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article South Bay Salt Works, which you recently created or substantially expanded. The fact was ... that South Bay Salt Works is the second longest-running business in San Diego? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/South Bay Salt Works. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, live views, daily totals), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.|
Would you please take a look
Would you please take a look at the edits and related talk sections I've been working on for this article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_strategy#Evolution The section in particular is one regarding Reagan and a campaign speech in 1980. The article contains references to those who claim the speech was proof of racism yet when I try to add references that suggest otherwise they are reverted by a pair of editors. What frustrates me is they are not justifying the reverts in the talk page. I'm basically looking for an outside opinion on my Talk page arguments and the edits. I feel that the editors are simply protecting the current tone of the article regardless of the facts presented. Thanks https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Southern_strategy#Opinion_Pieces Getoverpops (talk) 00:05, 18 June 2015 (UTC) Could you help me with one other issue? I realized some of my footnotes were done incorrectly. I wanted to avoid the long quotes that support my references so I tried to embed the text in the reference. This isn't correct but I'm trying to figure out how to make my references in context with your combined references. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Footnotes#Footnotes:_embedding_references ThanksGetoverpops (talk) 02:27, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
- @Getoverpops: Try looking at Template:Cite book. Enter the text in "|laysummary=" along with "|laydate=". This way the book can be linked to, and the summary can be kept.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 03:42, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
I wanted to thank you for the inputs on the Southern Strategy page. Sadly I think my combination of enthusiasm and novice understanding of the rules will be called edit waring by a few posters, in particular as a way to guard the current slant of the article. Anyway, I will probably be told that I'm no longer welcome on that topic. A pity as I think the topic needs work and your posts were finally offering a bit of balance. Either way, if this is how things shake up, thank you for the help. Getoverpops (talk) 04:16, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

DYK for Montsec, Meuse
|On 2 July 2015, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Montsec, Meuse, which you recently created or substantially expanded. The fact was ... that a monument (pictured) was built to commemorate American soldiers who fought in the 1918 Battle of Saint-Mihiel near Montsec, Meuse? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Montsec, Meuse. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, live views, daily totals), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.

Thank you for noticing my edits on Montsec, Meuse! It was my pleasure to hopefully improve it some. Of course the author of the article User:Dr. Blofeld is a wonderful editor so I was honored to work on his article. He likely hadn't had the time just yet to enhance it beyond the start-up stage. Cheers, and hope you're doing well. --Wapiti (talk) 16:27, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
Excellent work, and thanks! Yes, given that I started a good 10,000 odd of the French communes which were entirely missing I'm afraid they were created as sub stubs. It is always great to see editors expanding them, hope you continue to do so!♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:33, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Demographics of Filipino Americans
The article Demographics of Filipino Americans you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold . The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed.
